Hawaii Arsenal History
The arsenal was designed as a storage and repair facility for coastal defense armament and normal small arms equipment.
The arsenal was laid out as an equilateral triangle with a crescent added to the base. Inside the triangle the arsenal buildings formed three rows with additional buildings lining the two sides. The crescent at the base of the triangle was lined with the arsenal's quarters including the Commanding officer's quarters, his assistant officer's quarters, NCO quarters, Barracks, a stable and a garage.
The arsenal buildings that filled in the triangle included:
A rail spur from the Oahu Railway and Land Co. provided access to the storehouses and ammunition magazines from the port wharves.
Some buildings remain repurposed on the post.
